Building a DevOps Culture

Based on the name, it’s easy to assume that DevOps occurs within the team of developers who create the software and the operations group who run the software for users. But the change required is cultural, and cultural change is pervasive across any organization. Everyone is impacted by it. Everyone experiences changes in paradigm, attitude, and approach.

Culture is so ingrained that it cannot simply be changed by caveat. Instead, it is influenced, it is encouraged, and given credible evidence. Then it slowly shifts. As it does, it is important to assure all members of the team that it is safe to accept change, just as it is safe to fail as long as learning results from it.

Acceleration of processes is again accomplished by innovating and improving every component of the value chain. Large monolithic blocks of code that take months to develop, code, and implement give way to microservices in containers that are loosely coupled and much finer grained. These reductions make them far faster to develop, code, deliver, and deploy. Even users are encouraged to perform faster, specifically when it comes to providing feedback for further improvement.

Most of the time, a process that will benefit from automation is quickly automated to achieve greater speed in performing repetitive functions. One of the acceptance criteria for every tool incorporated into a DevOps environment is speed of performance. Faster technology is incorporated at every level from servers and storage to code and compilers.
